Host: Frederick Van Johnson

Episode Overview

This week, Frederick Van Johnson interviews lawyer Ed Greenberg and acclaimed photographer and copyright guru Jack Reznicki. In addition to their role-playing the courtroom grilling of a typically naive photographer, the litigious duo join Frederick in a spirited conversation to equip you with key tools and knowledge to protect your photographs and your business.

After listening, be sure to take the next step and check out Greenberg's and Reznicki's essential book on the subject, Photographer's Survival Manual.

Listen in as Frederick, Ed and Jack answer these questions and more:

  • “Why should I sign before I shoot?”
  • “What about those model release apps for my Android, iPhone or iPad?”
  • “Is a model release a contract?”
  • “What are 3 steps I can take today to get on track with the legal side of my work?”

Legal counsel is just another form of business insurance.” – Ed Greenberg
